Rebekah From Sugar City, ID

Just wanted to drop a line to share our happiness and appreciation again with you. The Sebastopol geese have matured so beautifully. Pictures do not do them justice. They are fun to watch, beautiful and adding to the pleasure of our life. Thank you for such healthy stock.
Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds
Ed From Easton

They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
Pastor Kip From Bloomington, WI

Thank you so much, I received my small order of four baby ducks on Tuesday. They are all eating and drinking and are so cute, what great service! Perfect for the small flock family. Next time will be some Runner ducks
Brian From Twenty-nine Palms, CA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.
Melissa From Oswego, NY

I picked up my birds and they were all very well! The pair of Sebastopol geese have been the center of all the conversations with friends and family. Can't wait for them to grow up! Thank you so much for another wonderful hatch! Looking forward to many years of your birds
Andrea From BC, Canada

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Ken From Lawtons, NY

Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
Jennifer & Tammy From Lake Mary, FL

This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Peter From Cambria, CA

Thank you so much for making such an extended effort to find a new way for us to receive your ducks this year. Your ducks always do well at our County Fair for my sons and they do so enjoy them! We so appreciate working with you! Thanks again!
Pam From Victoria, KS

Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks. They will be greeted with a great staff while ordering, all the way to receiving outstanding waterfowl! Thumbs up to you all!!
Dave From Georgetown, DE

I want to thank your farm for sending me all healthy little ducklings. I am so excited. After a few hours they were running around in the brooder. My whole family is enjoying them and they think this is a great experience for everyone.
Anon From Litchfield Park, AZ

I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
Anon From Wyandotte, MI

Last year our 4-H group ordered ducks and geese for our county fair projects. Your ducks and geese were grand and reserve duck and goose. There were four Metzer waterfowl entered and all four were on the top! My daughter REALLY enjoys her ducks and was very proud and pleased to win.
Anon From Perry, MI

I want to let you know that the Golden Hybrids I purchased this last spring are the best ducks I have ever kept! They lay daily, and the eggs are delicious! Also, very calm ducks and they are quiet which is nice!

We sell our duck eggs to the public and our ducks can't seem to lay enough eggs to satisfy our customers. Our ducks have always arrived on time and in good happy condition.
Marilynn From Lynden, WA

Every time I call and ask a question, you have been really helpful and very knowledgeable. My wife and I really appreciate what you're doing and always look forward to our order of ducks when they arrive. Thank you for a wonderful service.

After two semi-sleepless night because of excitement and a little worry my Sebastapol geese and Khaki Campbell ducks arrived safely and in great condition. They are very friendly and I love them. Thanks for sending such healthy birds.

David From Demopolis, AL

Just wanted to let you all know how happy we are with our ducklings! We ordered 2 Khaki Campbell females last week and they are a Joy! "Fenwick and Brown Sugar" are doing well...I really appreciate your service and will tell others about Metzer Farms.

Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
Michael From Dallas, TX

Just letting you know my four babies arrived on time yesterday morning in great shape. Thank you for all of your support and I am looking forward to ordering from you in the future.
McKenzie From Colorado Springs, CO

Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
Lisa From Carrollton, GA

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Herb & Marylinn From Lynden, WA

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
Hedwig From Germany

YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
Paul From Nova Scotia, Canada

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

Rod From Duvall, WA

Thank you for all the info and your blog. It answered a lot of my questions.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
Marlana From Mountain City, TN

Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.
Jack From Appling, GA

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Cindy From Lake Charles, LA

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Christine From Byron, NY

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!!

Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!

Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!

BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!

Pamela From Acampo, CA

Christopher From Eugene, OR

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!

Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Robert From

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Ducklings arrived early this morning and were very busy drinking and eating and they are now napping. They are beautiful, healthy and I'm very happy with them. Thank you very much.
Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy! I just wanted to thank you so much for being a good business and making my first online chick ordering a success! I will be doing business with you for any future purchases.

I would like to thank you guys so much for our new members of the family. I picked up our baby Mallards this morning and they were healthy and playing around. They love their new home. Again thank you!
Cody From Camplejeune, NC

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
unknown From

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Justin From

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

Henry From Dallas, OR

On behalf of the children and teachers, I would like to report that we have veins in our eggs! The candling experience was absolutely beautiful. There were goosebumps and smiles of pure joy. We are so grateful you pushed us to move forward because this experience is absolutely beautiful.
Lauren From Dearborn, MI

Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25.

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
Ruth From

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
Tim From Oak Grove, MN

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
Maya From Lantana, FL

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!
Caleb From Metlakatla, AK

I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!

Burley From Columbus, OH

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Just received my two female Pekin ducklings this morning. They arrived in perfect condition. Both very healthy and happy babies. Thank you very much. Will order from you again!
Shanna From

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.
Isaac From Westminster,MA

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Michele From Topeka, KS

I wanted to send a big thank you to you and your farm. My birds arrived all in healthy condition. Very impressed with your fast communications nice staff. Great work guys
Derek From Rock Fall, IL

Robert From Ridgeway, SC

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Michael From N. Attleboro, MA

We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
Amber From Unknown

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!

Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically!
Amanda From

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
David From Sanger, CA

Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!

I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
Dalton From Unknow

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.
David From Durham, NC

Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Jennifer From Unknown

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.

Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm.

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!

Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks.

Lisa From Carrollton, GA

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
Hedwig From Germany

YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
Paul From Nova Scotia, Canada

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Rod From Duvall, WA

Thank you for all the info and your blog. It answered a lot of my questions.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
Marlana From Mountain City, TN

Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.
Jack From Appling, GA

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Cindy From Lake Charles, LA

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Christine From Byron, NY

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Bluestone River Farm From

All ten ducklings arrived perfectly without any issues and very active!! Thank ya'll, they're awesome!
Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
Carmie From Stafford, VA

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!

Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
Rich From Springfield, OH

Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

So happy with the Welsh Harlequin ducklings I received today. Shipped across the country, entire order is still alive and very sassy :)

BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.

Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.

I got my six babies early!! Thanks so much for getting them to me perfectly fine.They are happy as can be and tall robust little Indian Runners. I've already mentioned Metzer Farms to a couple people. Also thanks for the great customer service and answering my questions Ashley!

Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!
Sara From Lexington, KY

The eggs arrived yesterday in perfect condition! What a CLEVER way to ship! And the eggs taste great!Thank you SO much!
Lana From Lakemont, GA

My ducklings arrived happy & healthy. As always I am thrilled with the ducks I get from you. We always get many compliments on the ducks we have at our herding trials. Great product and awesome service!
Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Robert From

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

I just wanted to let you know I got my ducklings from the post office and I am very happy with the quality of ducks you provided and I really like how you packed them. Keep up the good work!

I'm so impressed with y'all! I received my duck eggs two days after I ordered them. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'm really impressed!
Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy!

Brittany From Mendon, VT

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
unknown From

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Justin From

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

On behalf of the children and teachers, I would like to report that we have veins in our eggs! The candling experience was absolutely beautiful. There were goosebumps and smiles of pure joy. We are so grateful you pushed us to move forward because this experience is absolutely beautiful.
Lauren From Dearborn, MI

Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25.

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
Ruth From

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
Tim From Oak Grove, MN

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!

Burley From Columbus, OH

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Michael From N. Attleboro, MA

We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
Amber From Unknown

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!
Rebecca From Unknown

Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically!
Amanda From

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
David From Sanger, CA

Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!
Laura From Richlands, VA

I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.
James From Mauriceville, TX

I delightfully received my Sebastopol gosling and white crested ducking. They are so beautiful, strong and healthy. I want to thank you for your patience and advice when helping me choose my precious pets. The lady I spoke with was a tremendous help.
Lara From Myrtle Beach, SC

The baby Runner ducks arrived in great shape! Fast shipping and great service...All the way from California to New York! Outstanding!! I am so very pleased with your customer service and quality of the Runners!
Cindy From Utica, NY

The Baby Runner ducks are beautiful and healthy. Thank you so much for everything. I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend Metzer Farms!! Your the BEST!
Cindy From Utica, NY

The ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Marietta, GA

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
Dalton From Unknow

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.
David From Durham, NC

Just wanted to thank you so much for our ducks. They all arrived healthy and in good condition. The enjoyment these ducks bring is immeasurable. Your duck farm will be at the top of our list for ordering our future ducks!
Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
Ed From Waverly, VA

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Jennifer From Unknown

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted to let you know the replacement Buff arrived with his travel partner safe and sound. I'm very grateful and you will definitely receive repeat business from us. As well as our recommendations to anyone I know shopping for a new hatchery.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted you to know that my two baby Welsh Harlequins arrived in Butler, PA today and they are perfect! So adorable, and so cuddly. Thank you!

Year after year, California ducklings leave Monday and arrive Wednesday at 8am like clock work. Thanks! Best waterfowl you can buy.
Blake From Genoa, NY

I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!
Lindsay From Anna, TX

I wanted to thank you for our beautiful new birds! They are all lively and active, and appear very healthy. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Rebekah From Sugar City, ID

Just wanted to drop a line to share our happiness and appreciation again with you. The Sebastopol geese have matured so beautifully. Pictures do not do them justice. They are fun to watch, beautiful and adding to the pleasure of our life. Thank you for such healthy stock.
Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds
Ed From Easton

They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
Pastor Kip From Bloomington, WI

Brian From Twenty-nine Palms, CA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.
Melissa From Oswego, NY

I picked up my birds and they were all very well! The pair of Sebastopol geese have been the center of all the conversations with friends and family. Can't wait for them to grow up! Thank you so much for another wonderful hatch! Looking forward to many years of your birds
Andrea From BC, Canada

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Ken From Lawtons, NY

Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
Jennifer & Tammy From Lake Mary, FL

This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Peter From Cambria, CA

Pam From Victoria, KS

Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks. They will be greeted with a great staff while ordering, all the way to receiving outstanding waterfowl! Thumbs up to you all!!
Dave From Georgetown, DE

Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge

John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.

Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Bluestone River Farm From

All ten ducklings arrived perfectly without any issues and very active!! Thank ya'll, they're awesome!
Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
Carmie From Stafford, VA

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

Hello from Minot North Dakota. We just wanted to thank you for our ducklings they arrived as said and in great health.
Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
Rich From Springfield, OH

Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
Kim From Hemet, CA

We received our ducklings and goslings last Wednesday at the post office. They came in great shape and are healthy and happy. I'm so thrilled with them. They are growing nicely and we will order again from you.
Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

So happy with the Welsh Harlequin ducklings I received today. Shipped across the country, entire order is still alive and very sassy :)
Emily From Clymer, NY

I just want to let you know we received our babies yesterday! All of them are doing well and are so excited about this new adventure! Thanks so much for delivering beautiful and top quality birds! Can't wait to place an order with you again in the future.
BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

The book i ordered on raising geese arrived today...just two days after ordering!! If this order were on eBay, your feedback from me woudl be five stars!!

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!

Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

I just wanted to let you know I got my ducklings from the post office and I am very happy with the quality of ducks you provided and I really like how you packed them. Keep up the good work!

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much! Thank you for every step of the process and how professional and helpful you allowed this process to be for our family. We would not hesitate to refer someone to your farm, thank you so much again!

Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy!

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
unknown From

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Justin From

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

On behalf of the children and teachers, I would like to report that we have veins in our eggs! The candling experience was absolutely beautiful. There were goosebumps and smiles of pure joy. We are so grateful you pushed us to move forward because this experience is absolutely beautiful.
Lauren From Dearborn, MI

Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25.

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
Ruth From

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
Tim From Oak Grove, MN

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
Maya From Lantana, FL

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!
Caleb From Metlakatla, AK

I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!

Burley From Columbus, OH

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Shanna From

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.

Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)

Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.

Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
Ed From Waverly, VA

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Jennifer From Unknown

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted to let you know the replacement Buff arrived with his travel partner safe and sound. I'm very grateful and you will definitely receive repeat business from us. As well as our recommendations to anyone I know shopping for a new hatchery.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted you to know that my two baby Welsh Harlequins arrived in Butler, PA today and they are perfect! So adorable, and so cuddly. Thank you!
Cindy From Butler, PA

Year after year, California ducklings leave Monday and arrive Wednesday at 8am like clock work. Thanks! Best waterfowl you can buy.
Blake From Genoa, NY

I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!
Lindsay From Anna, TX

I wanted to thank you for our beautiful new birds! They are all lively and active, and appear very healthy. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Rebekah From Sugar City, ID

Just wanted to drop a line to share our happiness and appreciation again with you. The Sebastopol geese have matured so beautifully. Pictures do not do them justice. They are fun to watch, beautiful and adding to the pleasure of our life. Thank you for such healthy stock.
Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds
Ed From Easton

They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
Pastor Kip From Bloomington, WI

Thank you so much, I received my small order of four baby ducks on Tuesday. They are all eating and drinking and are so cute, what great service! Perfect for the small flock family. Next time will be some Runner ducks
Brian From Twenty-nine Palms, CA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.
Melissa From Oswego, NY

I picked up my birds and they were all very well! The pair of Sebastopol geese have been the center of all the conversations with friends and family. Can't wait for them to grow up! Thank you so much for another wonderful hatch! Looking forward to many years of your birds
Andrea From BC, Canada

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Ken From Lawtons, NY

Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
Jennifer & Tammy From Lake Mary, FL

This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Peter From Cambria, CA

Thank you so much for making such an extended effort to find a new way for us to receive your ducks this year. Your ducks always do well at our County Fair for my sons and they do so enjoy them! We so appreciate working with you! Thanks again!
Pam From Victoria, KS

Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks. They will be greeted with a great staff while ordering, all the way to receiving outstanding waterfowl! Thumbs up to you all!!
Dave From Georgetown, DE

I want to thank your farm for sending me all healthy little ducklings. I am so excited. After a few hours they were running around in the brooder. My whole family is enjoying them and they think this is a great experience for everyone.
Anon From Litchfield Park, AZ

I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
Anon From Wyandotte, MI

Last year our 4-H group ordered ducks and geese for our county fair projects. Your ducks and geese were grand and reserve duck and goose. There were four Metzer waterfowl entered and all four were on the top! My daughter REALLY enjoys her ducks and was very proud and pleased to win.
Anon From Perry, MI

I want to let you know that the Golden Hybrids I purchased this last spring are the best ducks I have ever kept! They lay daily, and the eggs are delicious! Also, very calm ducks and they are quiet which is nice!
Anon From Clinton, UT

We just wanted to let you know that we received our two Welsh Harlequin babies yesterday and they are doing wonderful. This is the first time we have bought and owned ducks and we are very satisfied with your service.

My wife and I have ordered ducks from you every year since 2005. We have been extremely happy with our ducks that we have ordered from you. They are the best and always turn out to be happy and friendly ducks with lots of personality.
Herb From Lynden, WA

We sell our duck eggs to the public and our ducks can't seem to lay enough eggs to satisfy our customers. Our ducks have always arrived on time and in good happy condition.
Marilynn From Lynden, WA

Every time I call and ask a question, you have been really helpful and very knowledgeable. My wife and I really appreciate what you're doing and always look forward to our order of ducks when they arrive. Thank you for a wonderful service.
Herb & Marilynn From Lynde, WA

After two semi-sleepless night because of excitement and a little worry my Sebastapol geese and Khaki Campbell ducks arrived safely and in great condition. They are very friendly and I love them. Thanks for sending such healthy birds.
Susan From Freeland, WA

Fred From Crney's Point, NJ

David From Demopolis, AL

Just wanted to let you all know how happy we are with our ducklings! We ordered 2 Khaki Campbell females last week and they are a Joy! "Fenwick and Brown Sugar" are doing well...I really appreciate your service and will tell others about Metzer Farms.
Ashley From Smithfiled, PA

Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
Michael From Dallas, TX

Just letting you know my four babies arrived on time yesterday morning in great shape. Thank you for all of your support and I am looking forward to ordering from you in the future.
McKenzie From Colorado Springs, CO

Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
Lisa From Carrollton, GA

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Herb & Marylinn From Lynden, WA

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
Hedwig From Germany

YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
Paul From Nova Scotia, Canada

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Rod From Duvall, WA

Thank you for all the info and your blog. It answered a lot of my questions.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
Marlana From Mountain City, TN

Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.
Jack From Appling, GA

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Cindy From Lake Charles, LA

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Christine From Byron, NY

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!

Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.

Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!!

They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!

Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!

BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

You shipped me 3 Embden goslings. When the post office called me, I hurried there and opened the box and saw the most beautiful baby geese I have ever seen. I want to thank you for the great service you provided and for shipping me the most precious babies. They will be loved.
Kim From Jonesboro,LA

My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
Susan From Glendale, CA

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!

Pamela From Acampo, CA

Christopher From Eugene, OR

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!

Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!

My ducklings arrived happy & healthy. As always I am thrilled with the ducks I get from you. We always get many compliments on the ducks we have at our herding trials. Great product and awesome service!
Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Robert From

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy!

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
unknown From

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Justin From

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

On behalf of the children and teachers, I would like to report that we have veins in our eggs! The candling experience was absolutely beautiful. There were goosebumps and smiles of pure joy. We are so grateful you pushed us to move forward because this experience is absolutely beautiful.
Lauren From Dearborn, MI

Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25.

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
Ruth From

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
Maya From Lantana, FL

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!
Caleb From Metlakatla, AK

I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!

Burley From Columbus, OH

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Shanna From

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.
Isaac From Westminster,MA

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Michele From Topeka, KS

I wanted to send a big thank you to you and your farm. My birds arrived all in healthy condition. Very impressed with your fast communications nice staff. Great work guys

Robert From Ridgeway, SC

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.

I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Michael From N. Attleboro, MA

We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
Amber From Unknown

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
David From Sanger, CA

Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!

I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.

Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.

Mary From Leverett, MA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so!

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!

Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks.

After two semi-sleepless night because of excitement and a little worry my Sebastapol geese and Khaki Campbell ducks arrived safely and in great condition. They are very friendly and I love them. Thanks for sending such healthy birds.
Susan From Freeland, WA

David From Demopolis, AL

Just wanted to let you all know how happy we are with our ducklings! We ordered 2 Khaki Campbell females last week and they are a Joy! "Fenwick and Brown Sugar" are doing well...I really appreciate your service and will tell others about Metzer Farms.
Ashley From Smithfiled, PA

Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
Michael From Dallas, TX

Just letting you know my four babies arrived on time yesterday morning in great shape. Thank you for all of your support and I am looking forward to ordering from you in the future.
McKenzie From Colorado Springs, CO

Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
Lisa From Carrollton, GA

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Herb & Marylinn From Lynden, WA

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
Hedwig From Germany

YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
Paul From Nova Scotia, Canada

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Rod From Duvall, WA

Thank you for all the info and your blog. It answered a lot of my questions.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
Marlana From Mountain City, TN

Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.
Jack From Appling, GA

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Cindy From Lake Charles, LA

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Christine From Byron, NY

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Bluestone River Farm From

All ten ducklings arrived perfectly without any issues and very active!! Thank ya'll, they're awesome!
Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
Carmie From Stafford, VA

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!

Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
Rich From Springfield, OH

Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
Kim From Hemet, CA

We received our ducklings and goslings last Wednesday at the post office. They came in great shape and are healthy and happy. I'm so thrilled with them. They are growing nicely and we will order again from you.
Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

So happy with the Welsh Harlequin ducklings I received today. Shipped across the country, entire order is still alive and very sassy :)
Emily From Clymer, NY

BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

The book i ordered on raising geese arrived today...just two days after ordering!! If this order were on eBay, your feedback from me woudl be five stars!!

Great place for ducks, it's where I send everyone for ducks that call me, thanks John for your commitment to excellent ducks and great customer service.
Elijah From

You shipped me 3 Embden goslings. When the post office called me, I hurried there and opened the box and saw the most beautiful baby geese I have ever seen. I want to thank you for the great service you provided and for shipping me the most precious babies. They will be loved.
Kim From Jonesboro,LA

My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
Susan From Glendale, CA

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!

Pamela From Acampo, CA

Christopher From Eugene, OR

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!
Sara From Lexington, KY

The eggs arrived yesterday in perfect condition! What a CLEVER way to ship! And the eggs taste great!Thank you SO much!
Lana From Lakemont, GA

My ducklings arrived happy & healthy. As always I am thrilled with the ducks I get from you. We always get many compliments on the ducks we have at our herding trials. Great product and awesome service!
Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Robert From

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

I just wanted to let you know I got my ducklings from the post office and I am very happy with the quality of ducks you provided and I really like how you packed them. Keep up the good work!

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy!

Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
Tim From Oak Grove, MN

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Just received my two female Pekin ducklings this morning. They arrived in perfect condition. Both very healthy and happy babies. Thank you very much. Will order from you again!
Shanna From

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.
Isaac From Westminster,MA

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Michele From Topeka, KS

I wanted to send a big thank you to you and your farm. My birds arrived all in healthy condition. Very impressed with your fast communications nice staff. Great work guys
Derek From Rock Fall, IL

I ordered 20 chickens and 15 ducklings that were delivered today. All of my birds arrived alive and in very good shape! I could not be more happy or impressed with by the service and quality of Metzer Farms! This is certainly where I will place all future orders.
Robert From Ridgeway, SC

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Michael From N. Attleboro, MA

We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
Amber From Unknown

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!
Rebecca From Unknown

Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically!
Amanda From

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
David From Sanger, CA

Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!
Laura From Richlands, VA

I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.
James From Mauriceville, TX

I delightfully received my Sebastopol gosling and white crested ducking. They are so beautiful, strong and healthy. I want to thank you for your patience and advice when helping me choose my precious pets. The lady I spoke with was a tremendous help.
Lara From Myrtle Beach, SC

The baby Runner ducks arrived in great shape! Fast shipping and great service...All the way from California to New York! Outstanding!! I am so very pleased with your customer service and quality of the Runners!

The ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Marietta, GA

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
Dalton From Unknow

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.
David From Durham, NC

Just wanted to thank you so much for our ducks. They all arrived healthy and in good condition. The enjoyment these ducks bring is immeasurable. Your duck farm will be at the top of our list for ordering our future ducks!
Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
Ed From Waverly, VA

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Jennifer From Unknown

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted to let you know the replacement Buff arrived with his travel partner safe and sound. I'm very grateful and you will definitely receive repeat business from us. As well as our recommendations to anyone I know shopping for a new hatchery.

I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!

Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds

Brian From Twenty-nine Palms, CA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

Melissa From Oswego, NY

Andrea From BC, Canada

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.

Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!

Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks.

Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch.

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge

John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.

Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.

Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Bluestone River Farm From

All ten ducklings arrived perfectly without any issues and very active!! Thank ya'll, they're awesome!
Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
Carmie From Stafford, VA

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

Hello from Minot North Dakota. We just wanted to thank you for our ducklings they arrived as said and in great health.
Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
Rich From Springfield, OH

Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
Kim From Hemet, CA

We received our ducklings and goslings last Wednesday at the post office. They came in great shape and are healthy and happy. I'm so thrilled with them. They are growing nicely and we will order again from you.
Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

So happy with the Welsh Harlequin ducklings I received today. Shipped across the country, entire order is still alive and very sassy :)
Emily From Clymer, NY

I just want to let you know we received our babies yesterday! All of them are doing well and are so excited about this new adventure! Thanks so much for delivering beautiful and top quality birds! Can't wait to place an order with you again in the future.
BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

The book i ordered on raising geese arrived today...just two days after ordering!! If this order were on eBay, your feedback from me woudl be five stars!!

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!

Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

I just wanted to let you know I got my ducklings from the post office and I am very happy with the quality of ducks you provided and I really like how you packed them. Keep up the good work!

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy!

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
unknown From

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Justin From

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

On behalf of the children and teachers, I would like to report that we have veins in our eggs! The candling experience was absolutely beautiful. There were goosebumps and smiles of pure joy. We are so grateful you pushed us to move forward because this experience is absolutely beautiful.
Lauren From Dearborn, MI

Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25.

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
Ruth From

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
Tim From Oak Grove, MN

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.

Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.

Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly.

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.

Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.

Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
Dalton From Unknow

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.
David From Durham, NC

Just wanted to thank you so much for our ducks. They all arrived healthy and in good condition. The enjoyment these ducks bring is immeasurable. Your duck farm will be at the top of our list for ordering our future ducks!
Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
Ed From Waverly, VA

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Jennifer From Unknown

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted to let you know the replacement Buff arrived with his travel partner safe and sound. I'm very grateful and you will definitely receive repeat business from us. As well as our recommendations to anyone I know shopping for a new hatchery.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted you to know that my two baby Welsh Harlequins arrived in Butler, PA today and they are perfect! So adorable, and so cuddly. Thank you!
Cindy From Butler, PA

Year after year, California ducklings leave Monday and arrive Wednesday at 8am like clock work. Thanks! Best waterfowl you can buy.
Blake From Genoa, NY

I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!
Lindsay From Anna, TX

I wanted to thank you for our beautiful new birds! They are all lively and active, and appear very healthy. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Rebekah From Sugar City, ID

Just wanted to drop a line to share our happiness and appreciation again with you. The Sebastopol geese have matured so beautifully. Pictures do not do them justice. They are fun to watch, beautiful and adding to the pleasure of our life. Thank you for such healthy stock.
Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds
Ed From Easton

They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
Pastor Kip From Bloomington, WI

Thank you so much, I received my small order of four baby ducks on Tuesday. They are all eating and drinking and are so cute, what great service! Perfect for the small flock family. Next time will be some Runner ducks
Brian From Twenty-nine Palms, CA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.
Melissa From Oswego, NY

I picked up my birds and they were all very well! The pair of Sebastopol geese have been the center of all the conversations with friends and family. Can't wait for them to grow up! Thank you so much for another wonderful hatch! Looking forward to many years of your birds
Andrea From BC, Canada

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Ken From Lawtons, NY

Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
Jennifer & Tammy From Lake Mary, FL

This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Peter From Cambria, CA

Thank you so much for making such an extended effort to find a new way for us to receive your ducks this year. Your ducks always do well at our County Fair for my sons and they do so enjoy them! We so appreciate working with you! Thanks again!
Pam From Victoria, KS

Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks. They will be greeted with a great staff while ordering, all the way to receiving outstanding waterfowl! Thumbs up to you all!!
Dave From Georgetown, DE

I want to thank your farm for sending me all healthy little ducklings. I am so excited. After a few hours they were running around in the brooder. My whole family is enjoying them and they think this is a great experience for everyone.
Anon From Litchfield Park, AZ

I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
Anon From Wyandotte, MI

Last year our 4-H group ordered ducks and geese for our county fair projects. Your ducks and geese were grand and reserve duck and goose. There were four Metzer waterfowl entered and all four were on the top! My daughter REALLY enjoys her ducks and was very proud and pleased to win.
Anon From Perry, MI

I want to let you know that the Golden Hybrids I purchased this last spring are the best ducks I have ever kept! They lay daily, and the eggs are delicious! Also, very calm ducks and they are quiet which is nice!
Anon From Clinton, UT

We just wanted to let you know that we received our two Welsh Harlequin babies yesterday and they are doing wonderful. This is the first time we have bought and owned ducks and we are very satisfied with your service.
Jesse From Sonora, CA

We received our order this morning. They are cute little things and all made the trip alive. Thank you for the extra Buff... Glad to be doing business with you folks. You folks do a great Job!
Don From Libby, MT

My wife and I have ordered ducks from you every year since 2005. We have been extremely happy with our ducks that we have ordered from you. They are the best and always turn out to be happy and friendly ducks with lots of personality.
Herb From Lynden, WA

We sell our duck eggs to the public and our ducks can't seem to lay enough eggs to satisfy our customers. Our ducks have always arrived on time and in good happy condition.
Marilynn From Lynden, WA

Every time I call and ask a question, you have been really helpful and very knowledgeable. My wife and I really appreciate what you're doing and always look forward to our order of ducks when they arrive. Thank you for a wonderful service.
Herb & Marilynn From Lynde, WA

After two semi-sleepless night because of excitement and a little worry my Sebastapol geese and Khaki Campbell ducks arrived safely and in great condition. They are very friendly and I love them. Thanks for sending such healthy birds.
Susan From Freeland, WA

Hi! Ducklings arrived here this morning, great service! Ducklings are in great shape. Kids are so excited thanks so much!
Fred From Crney's Point, NJ

We picked up our baby Rouen's this morning from the post office!! 12 happy and healthy babies!! Thank you so much!!
David From Demopolis, AL

Just wanted to let you all know how happy we are with our ducklings! We ordered 2 Khaki Campbell females last week and they are a Joy! "Fenwick and Brown Sugar" are doing well...I really appreciate your service and will tell others about Metzer Farms.
Ashley From Smithfiled, PA

Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
Michael From Dallas, TX

Just letting you know my four babies arrived on time yesterday morning in great shape. Thank you for all of your support and I am looking forward to ordering from you in the future.
McKenzie From Colorado Springs, CO

Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
Lisa From Carrollton, GA

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Herb & Marylinn From Lynden, WA

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
Hedwig From Germany

YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
Paul From Nova Scotia, Canada

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Rod From Duvall, WA

Thank you for all the info and your blog. It answered a lot of my questions.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
Marlana From Mountain City, TN

Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.
Jack From Appling, GA

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Cindy From Lake Charles, LA

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Christine From Byron, NY

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Bluestone River Farm From

All ten ducklings arrived perfectly without any issues and very active!! Thank ya'll, they're awesome!
Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
Carmie From Stafford, VA

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!

Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
Rich From Springfield, OH

Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!

BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

Kim From Jonesboro,LA

My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
Susan From Glendale, CA

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!

Pamela From Acampo, CA

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!

Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!

Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Robert From

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal.

LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

I just wanted to let you know I got my ducklings from the post office and I am very happy with the quality of ducks you provided and I really like how you packed them. Keep up the good work!

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Polly From High Falls, NY

I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy!

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
unknown From

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Justin From

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

Henry From Dallas, OR

On behalf of the children and teachers, I would like to report that we have veins in our eggs! The candling experience was absolutely beautiful. There were goosebumps and smiles of pure joy. We are so grateful you pushed us to move forward because this experience is absolutely beautiful.
Lauren From Dearborn, MI

Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25.

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
Ruth From

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.
Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
Tim From Oak Grove, MN

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
Jacqueline From Becket, MA

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
Maya From Lantana, FL

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!
Caleb From Metlakatla, AK

I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!

Burley From Columbus, OH

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Shanna From

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.
Isaac From Westminster,MA

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Michele From Topeka, KS

I wanted to send a big thank you to you and your farm. My birds arrived all in healthy condition. Very impressed with your fast communications nice staff. Great work guys

Robert From Ridgeway, SC

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.

I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Michael From N. Attleboro, MA

We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
Amber From Unknown

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!

Amanda From

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.

I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.

Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.

Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm.

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so!

Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!

Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metzer Farms and hatched them in my classroom. The children were always enthusiastic about the process and thrilled to see the ducklings hatch. A successful hatch has been a common experience with eggs from Metzer Farms.
Linda From Concord, NC

I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Beth From Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

I showed my Brown Chinas that I got from you at all our local New England Shows (Boston, New Hampshire, Little Rhody and others). Your geese were among the best quality out here and I just wanted to say thank you for being responsible for one of the best experiences of my childhood.
Ralph From Rowley, MA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!

Pam From Victoria, KS

Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Patty From Coshocton, OH

I ordered 10 Rouen ducks and they arrived the day I was told they would arrive. These ducklings are doing absolutely great! I would recommend you to anyone interested in ducks. They will be greeted with a great staff while ordering, all the way to receiving outstanding waterfowl! Thumbs up to you all!!

I want to thank your farm for sending me all healthy little ducklings. I am so excited. After a few hours they were running around in the brooder. My whole family is enjoying them and they think this is a great experience for everyone.
Anon From Litchfield Park, AZ

I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
Anon From Wyandotte, MI

Last year our 4-H group ordered ducks and geese for our county fair projects. Your ducks and geese were grand and reserve duck and goose. There were four Metzer waterfowl entered and all four were on the top! My daughter REALLY enjoys her ducks and was very proud and pleased to win.
Anon From Perry, MI

I want to let you know that the Golden Hybrids I purchased this last spring are the best ducks I have ever kept! They lay daily, and the eggs are delicious! Also, very calm ducks and they are quiet which is nice!
Anon From Clinton, UT

We just wanted to let you know that we received our two Welsh Harlequin babies yesterday and they are doing wonderful. This is the first time we have bought and owned ducks and we are very satisfied with your service.
Jesse From Sonora, CA

Don From Libby, MT

My wife and I have ordered ducks from you every year since 2005. We have been extremely happy with our ducks that we have ordered from you. They are the best and always turn out to be happy and friendly ducks with lots of personality.
Herb From Lynden, WA

We sell our duck eggs to the public and our ducks can't seem to lay enough eggs to satisfy our customers. Our ducks have always arrived on time and in good happy condition.
Marilynn From Lynden, WA

Every time I call and ask a question, you have been really helpful and very knowledgeable. My wife and I really appreciate what you're doing and always look forward to our order of ducks when they arrive. Thank you for a wonderful service.
Herb & Marilynn From Lynde, WA

After two semi-sleepless night because of excitement and a little worry my Sebastapol geese and Khaki Campbell ducks arrived safely and in great condition. They are very friendly and I love them. Thanks for sending such healthy birds.
Susan From Freeland, WA

David From Demopolis, AL

Just wanted to let you all know how happy we are with our ducklings! We ordered 2 Khaki Campbell females last week and they are a Joy! "Fenwick and Brown Sugar" are doing well...I really appreciate your service and will tell others about Metzer Farms.
Ashley From Smithfiled, PA

Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
Michael From Dallas, TX

Just letting you know my four babies arrived on time yesterday morning in great shape. Thank you for all of your support and I am looking forward to ordering from you in the future.
McKenzie From Colorado Springs, CO

Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
Lisa From Carrollton, GA

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
Cathy From Crofton, KY

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Herb & Marylinn From Lynden, WA

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Kristal From Columbia, SC

The ducklings & geese arrived this morning. They all appear to be very healthy and happy at this point. Here are a couple of pics. Stay tune for more pics as they grow. Tell the guys in the back thanks again for sending very healthy birds.
Paula From Elkton, MD

Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
Hedwig From Germany

YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
Paul From Nova Scotia, Canada

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Rod From Duvall, WA

Thank you for all the info and your blog. It answered a lot of my questions.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
Marlana From Mountain City, TN

Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.
Jack From Appling, GA

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Cindy From Lake Charles, LA

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
John From Vancouver, WA

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Mary From Aztec,NM

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Ethan From Carson City, MI

Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Dennis From Troy, MI

Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Edward From Upland, CA

Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
Diane From Indianapolis, IN

They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
Don From Shelton, WA

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
Stone Corner Farm From New Sharon, MA

We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
Tom From Wonder Valey, CA

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Christine From Byron, NY

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations. I found out you shipped the eggs the very same day they were ordered. Now that's service! I'm a very happy customer, and plan to try some Metzer Golden 300's next year.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Julie From Pearcy, AR

I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks.
Judy From Largo, FL

HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!
Leslie From Simi Valley, CA

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
Robin From Freeland, WA

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

After having some trouble with the health of previously bought ducks from a different farm, we are so happy to have found such quality in your farm.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
Wendy From New Vineyard, ME

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
Tammy From Casper, WY

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
Karen From Klamath Falls, OR

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
Susan From Washington, DC

Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
Rachel and Abbey From Lithia, FL

I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs.
Sara From Fremont, CA

What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest!
Leslie From

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Caridad From

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.
Lori From

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
Joseph From San Diego, CA

I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Kyle From Mason,MI

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process.
Christian From

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you.
Colleen From Rockville, IN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
Julie From Greenleaf, WI

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day.
Leslie From Oklahoma City, OK

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Marlo From Gloucester, VA

I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Shannon From

Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

My three darling ducklings arrived today - healthy, active and just so cute. I want to thank you so much not only for your service but for the quality of these healthy babies.I couln't be more pleased.
Linda From McCleary, WA

Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Lisa From

I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
Catherine From Blue Ridge, GA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
Erin From

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
John From Waynesboro, VA

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Tara From North Scituate, RI

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Pat From Magalia, CA

I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Brian From

I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
Geri From

I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Mary From Marengo, IN

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
Kristin From BC, Canada

They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!!
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!
Priscilla From Trussville, AL

Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

We are happy to find a company that would let us order just two; in the past we have not gotten geese because we did not want more than two and after seeing how vigorous these two are you will have all our waterfowl business!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

And your customer service is exceptional. My goslings arrived on time in a clean, comfortable box with gel to eat. Thumbs up!!!
Kimberly From Ann Arbor, MI

I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
From

We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Bluestone River Farm From

All ten ducklings arrived perfectly without any issues and very active!! Thank ya'll, they're awesome!
Brittany From

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know the 5 little ducklings I ordered arrived this morning, safe and healthy. They are adorable, I'm delighted with them. They are eating, drinking, and running all around their pen. Thanks again.
Lorna From West Burke, VT

I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
Carmie From Stafford, VA

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
Ivette From Bristow, OK

I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
Tamma From La Mesa, CA

Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
Cynthia From North Fork, CA

I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Shannon From Watkins Glen, NY

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
Angela From Camby, IN

We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
Amy From Fort Worth, TX

We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Tara From Tucson, AZ

The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
Alex From Lansdowne, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
Lisa From

I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
James From Ringgold, GA

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

Hello from Minot North Dakota. We just wanted to thank you for our ducklings they arrived as said and in great health.
Nicole From Minot, ND

We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
Nicole From Minot, ND

I received all my ducks today and they were all in great shape. Is there anywhere on your site I could write a review? I could express my feelings and it would help your site's ratings.
Marv From Amidon, ND

We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Michelle From Issaquah, WA

Thank you so much for the very healthy Welsh Harlequins they are doing wonderful only regret I have is not getting a bigger order!
Nathan From Dustin, OK

Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
Rich From Springfield, OH

Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
Kim From Hemet, CA

We received our ducklings and goslings last Wednesday at the post office. They came in great shape and are healthy and happy. I'm so thrilled with them. They are growing nicely and we will order again from you.
Monica From Big Sandy, TN

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
Victoria From Cross River, NY

So happy with the Welsh Harlequin ducklings I received today. Shipped across the country, entire order is still alive and very sassy :)

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent ducks you sent! I picked them up this morning and they were all perfectly healthy and alive...And got home to realize you sent an extra duck! Thank you!! I will most definitely be buying ducks from you next year and for years to come!
Jeff From Reno, NV

BJ From Damon, TX

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

Great place for ducks, it's where I send everyone for ducks that call me, thanks John for your commitment to excellent ducks and great customer service.
Elijah From

You shipped me 3 Embden goslings. When the post office called me, I hurried there and opened the box and saw the most beautiful baby geese I have ever seen. I want to thank you for the great service you provided and for shipping me the most precious babies. They will be loved.
Kim From Jonesboro,LA

My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
Susan From Glendale, CA

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!
Tyrant Farms From

Thank you so much for the ducklings. The kids love them and I can't tell you how much it means to our farm. You guys are really great.

Pamela From Acampo, CA

Christopher From Eugene, OR

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Rebecca From Amite, LA

If only all the facets of our farm were as easy to deal with as you guys, everyone would be in the duck business.
Rebecca From Amite, LA

Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
Sara From Lexington, KY

From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!
Sara From Lexington, KY

The eggs arrived yesterday in perfect condition! What a CLEVER way to ship! And the eggs taste great!Thank you SO much!

My ducklings arrived happy & healthy. As always I am thrilled with the ducks I get from you. We always get many compliments on the ducks we have at our herding trials. Great product and awesome service!
Debbie From Oregon House, CA

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.
Erika From Ind. Harbour Beach, FL

We have always won with your geese and especially Jumbo Pekins. They just don't have much in WI for waterfowl. My order usually arrives with very low if any mortality considering it comes half way across the US. Thanks again.
Kim From Melrose, WI

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

Despite - 17* temps, my ducks arrived in perfect shape! I'm thankful for the heat pack and grogel you packed them with, and everyone was eating, drinking, and snacking within minutes of being unpacked.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All ducks had telltale green grogel beacks, so I know they all made use of it en route. Thanks again for my lovely starter flock!
Elena From Lafayette, CO

I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Cathy From Beaverton, OR

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
Phyllis From Bullard, TX

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
James From Groveland, FL

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

My 3 female ducklings arrived at my house in Missouri safely today. They are beautiful. I have heard good things about Metzer Farms which is why I chose to order from you. Thanks so much.
Chrissy From Ferguson, MO

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

I want to thank Metzer Farms for my reshipment of ducklings arriving safe and sound! They are lively and doing great and my children than you for the great variety. I'd take a picture, but they are too lively to stay still for one!
Yolanda From Easton, MD

My Sebastopols arrived yesterday morning as scheduled...on my birthday!!! Their warm pack was still a little warm for them...they were happy to arrive at their new home. Thank you for their safe shipping! Now to name them!!!
Connie From facebook

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

Your goslings are great and are so fuzzy. They arrived healthy, happy, cute and get along with my other poultry just fine. Two thumbs up for the breeders. The wonderful Metzer Farms staff takes good care of their birds! When I said that I would do business with you again, I knew I would.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

The girls have arrived to their new Texas home safe and sound. They are beautiful and appear to be healthy and strong. Thank you!
JuanNell From Wimberley, TX

Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Tim From Grand Rapids, MN

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds.
Juanita From Nokes

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Sara From Clermont, GA

I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
Allison From Denron,VA

Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
John From Bluffton, GA

Our shipment of Jumbo Pekin ducklings arrived yesterday....great condition. They are lively, eating and drinking their fill. Thank you for a great product..."er I mean for our ten little babies!!
Eura From Coos Bay, OR

Just wanted to say thanks for the hatching eggs sent earlier this past April. All six were viable and five hatched. I never hesitate to tell people where my ducks come from, or how pleased I am with my purchases.
Tara From Rhode Island

A note from another happy and grateful customer who has received my baby ducks...healthy and happy...they give me happiness. Thank you.
Jeanne From Bondville, VT

All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
AnnieLaurie From Allyn, WA

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

I have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
Sally From Gustavus, AK

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
Jay From Lakewood, CO

You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
Jay From Lakewood, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
Daniella From UK

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.
From West Virginia

The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price.
From West Virginia

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
Pete From Drums, PA

I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
Kaylynn From

Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
Robin From Saint Paul, OR

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the duck eggs I ordered. All that were fertile at candling (8 eggs covering 3 different breeds) hatched yesterday and this morning. Everyone looks healthy and happy.
Karen From Arcata, CA

My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future.
Jessica From Lindale, TX

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

Just wanted to drop you an email to express our sincere gratitude and thanks. You and Metzer Farms have been so helpful and with all the info you have put on your blog and website our ducks are a success! Thank you for giving us so much info to be successful since we were not experienced in ducks at all!
Eva From Culpeper, VA

I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
Sheila From Iron City, TN`

Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
Sheila From Iron City, TN

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Southeast Poultry Re From Athens, GA

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
Jim From Greenwood, DE

This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
Steve From Paducah, KY

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I called the hatchery when I got home and reported my findings. The phone was answered by someone Ashley, and I must say she was very courteous, professional, and reassuring. What an asset to your company.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Michael From Leonardsville, NY

I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
Tawanna From Wedowee, AL

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Jason From Portland, OR

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Robert From

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

We received our order of Cayugas, White Layers, Golden 300s and Buffs that were shipped to us in Anchorage, Alaska. We are writing to you to let you know we are very satisfied with our purchase and will be referring you to everyone who express a desire to raise ducks.
Adolf and Nickelle From Anchorage, AK

Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future.
Kelly From

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
Carlos From Chappaqua, NY

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
Ashley From Madera, CA

I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
LeAnne From Marysville, OH

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
Verna From Garretson, SD

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
christine From Eugene, OR

Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
Jordon From Travelers Rest, SC

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

Keilie From Carthage, NC

Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Bruce From Pueblo, CO

I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Nathan From Penrose, CO

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much!

Meryl From Westford, VT

I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
Alex From

Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Ed From Eden, NY

As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
Kristen From Huntingtown, MD

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.

I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.

Melinda From Capron, IL

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
Maya From Lantana, FL

Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
Brooklyn From Ferndale, WA

Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!
Caleb From Metlakatla, AK

I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!
Kendal From Unknown

I picked them up this morning and found two happy, hungry, and thirsty ducklings! They were packed very well. Thank you!

Burley From Columbus, OH

I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.

Just received my two female Pekin ducklings this morning. They arrived in perfect condition. Both very healthy and happy babies. Thank you very much. Will order from you again!
Shanna From

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.
Isaac From Westminster,MA

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Michele From Topeka, KS

I wanted to send a big thank you to you and your farm. My birds arrived all in healthy condition. Very impressed with your fast communications nice staff. Great work guys
Derek From Rock Fall, IL

I ordered 20 chickens and 15 ducklings that were delivered today. All of my birds arrived alive and in very good shape! I could not be more happy or impressed with by the service and quality of Metzer Farms! This is certainly where I will place all future orders.
Robert From Ridgeway, SC

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

For the last shipment of 2000 ducklings that we picked up at a freezing airport, we only had one dead duckling when we got home. Normally we market 1980-2000 ducklings from each shipment of 2040 ducklings (including the 40 extra).
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Bree-Ann From Wilmot, NH

I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
Brittany From Willits, CA

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
Angel From Oakdale, LA

I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
Afton From Pinehurst, ID

I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
Brenda From Loxahatchee, FL

I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
Michael From N. Attleboro, MA

We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
Amber From Unknown

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!
Rebecca From Unknown

Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically!
Amanda From

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer.
Julie From Hickory, NC

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
David From Sanger, CA

Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!
Laura From Richlands, VA

I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
Carol From Oakdale, CA

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
Kristin From Royal, IA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.
James From Mauriceville, TX

I delightfully received my Sebastopol gosling and white crested ducking. They are so beautiful, strong and healthy. I want to thank you for your patience and advice when helping me choose my precious pets. The lady I spoke with was a tremendous help.
Lara From Myrtle Beach, SC

The baby Runner ducks arrived in great shape! Fast shipping and great service...All the way from California to New York! Outstanding!! I am so very pleased with your customer service and quality of the Runners!
Cindy From Utica, NY

The Baby Runner ducks are beautiful and healthy. Thank you so much for everything. I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend Metzer Farms!! Your the BEST!
Cindy From Utica, NY

Received my replacement Buff goslings today, all is well. Many thanks to you all again! I recommend you guys to everyone who has complimented our birds!
Angela From Oakdale, LA

Just received my 4 ducklings (2 Buff and 2 Welsh Harlequin)...was nervous about them making the trip healthy bu they all seem fine! Eating and drinking well...I live on the Eastern end of Long Island so they traveled a really long way!! So excited to be a duck mom! Thank you!

The ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
James From Unknown

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
Tege From Groveton,NH

Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
Dalton From Unknow

Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
Kristian From Unknown

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Jes From Unknown

They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
Jes From Unknown

Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.
David From Durham, NC

Just wanted to thank you so much for our ducks. They all arrived healthy and in good condition. The enjoyment these ducks bring is immeasurable. Your duck farm will be at the top of our list for ordering our future ducks!
Janis From Panama, NY

I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Garrett From Smithfield, NC

I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
Ed From Waverly, VA

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Jennifer From Unknown

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted to let you know the replacement Buff arrived with his travel partner safe and sound. I'm very grateful and you will definitely receive repeat business from us. As well as our recommendations to anyone I know shopping for a new hatchery.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Just wanted you to know that my two baby Welsh Harlequins arrived in Butler, PA today and they are perfect! So adorable, and so cuddly. Thank you!
Cindy From Butler, PA

Year after year, California ducklings leave Monday and arrive Wednesday at 8am like clock work. Thanks! Best waterfowl you can buy.
Blake From Genoa, NY

I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!
Lindsay From Anna, TX

I wanted to thank you for our beautiful new birds! They are all lively and active, and appear very healthy. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Rebekah From Sugar City, ID

Just wanted to drop a line to share our happiness and appreciation again with you. The Sebastopol geese have matured so beautifully. Pictures do not do them justice. They are fun to watch, beautiful and adding to the pleasure of our life. Thank you for such healthy stock.
Marla From Fresno, CA

Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Mary From Leverett, MA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds
Ed From Easton

They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
Pastor Kip From Bloomington, WI

Thank you so much, I received my small order of four baby ducks on Tuesday. They are all eating and drinking and are so cute, what great service! Perfect for the small flock family. Next time will be some Runner ducks
Brian From Twenty-nine Palms, CA

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.
Melissa From Oswego, NY

I picked up my birds and they were all very well! The pair of Sebastopol geese have been the center of all the conversations with friends and family. Can't wait for them to grow up! Thank you so much for another wonderful hatch! Looking forward to many years of your birds
Andrea From BC, Canada

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Ken From Lawtons, NY

Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
Greg From Lagrange, IN

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I ordered 10! Wow I got 11 ducklings all in perfect health! Today they are huge, healthy and quacking! I just wanted to say thank you. I have recommended Metzer Farms to many people, and I will always buy from you!
Lori From Romulus, MI

I adore the ducks. They are gorgeous and well tempered. We ordered two Sebastopol geese and they are hilarious. They spread their wings to herd the rest of the flock. I had no idea how much fun they would be.
Corrine From Blacklick, OH

For several years as a teacher, I ordered fertile duck eggs from Metz
